    Wrong.

    Did you ever try to go without auto insurance?

    Human rights are not tripe.
    Median ice is as much a public service as police and fire fighting. It has been miscast from the beginning. But these were not the only examples I gave you. Did you skip to avoid?

    And as as human rights are not being violated, you act is tripe.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Well, if you are for all the socials, security, elderly care, forced health care...progressive income taxes... sure beginning to sound like it...

    How about the public school system? A national central bank? Inheritance taxes, or abolition of inheritance? Already fulfilled pretty many of the planks of the Communist Manifesto right there.

    Do you believe that real life communism equates to freedom, do you?

    I never asked for your sympathy. I am however wondering how a state can justify taxing people for leaving the country for good.

    But the chances are pretty slim...I am thinking none... but sure, just about anything can happen.

    Didn't, but it could.

    Median Ice?

    And as as human rights are not being violated, you act is tripe.
    What makes you think the government can tell people how to live their lives and somehow not violate their rights?

    That's a good question and I'm sorry that I don't have a good answer.

    But guess what - I do agree that it does seem totally unfair.

    Like a lot of things in life.
